    The funny thing about the original is how Arnold was supposed to be a naive, average Joe. "Douglas Quaid". That's about the only thing I can see an improvement upon in a remake. He's supposed to slowly discover he's some badass secret agent. But being Arnold, it's totally obvious he's going to fuck everyone up from the start. There's that scene where his coworker and some others ambushes him and he kills him bear handed.. and he acts shocked and scared about it, and goes crying to his wife. It doesn't exactly fit.

    Its is a big warning flag for me. Usually, PG-13 for an action flick, especially a summer remake of an R rated, means 'fuck all' low production cash grab.

    This.

    The tendency to push films to pg-13 to try and capture the largest audience has turned me off most pg-13 movies.

    My mind instantly gives more artist cred to an R film.

    I actually think the remake looks better. Darker, grittier, with a bit more of a edge. I think the original was a bit comical. Schwarzenegger is a terrible actor and the costuming was ridiculous. Of course I saw it more than 10 years after it came out.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    That's why it should not be re-made.

    Yeah, I hear you. Take a look at the trailer though, it actually looks quite a bit better especially on the big screen.

    It depends on how you define "better."

    I'm mostly just joking, though. The old one was shitty and hilarious because of its badness. The problem is that this new one may look better, but it will probably be just as shitty...and it will lack that essential absurd quality that made the first one so hilarious because they wanted it to be good and not campy.
